Can anyone explain how to remove the sump and motor assembly on a Kenmore 665.16263402 dishwasher? Either the whole "sump with seal" assembly is very tightly held in (which I suppose it should be so it won't leak) or it's very heavy, which I suppose it is, or it's still fastened to the bottom of the tub somehow. Am I supposed to be able to pull it straight up? If so, how? I'm reluctant to mess with that seal much with a screwdriver or something, because I don't want to damage it.

The attached photo shows my progress in trying to get to the noisy motor, which I suspect has worn or rusted bearings. It's about 2 1/2 years old.

use extreme caution it look like a stainless tub,,,,,very sharp,,,,,9 stitches twice from these.. underneeth you will fine 3 white tabs  just right to hook your finger in one at 6 oclock  one about 10 occlock and another at 1 oclock.. these have to come out,,also on the front after youremove the drain hose a small storx screw need to come off and remove the plastic nipple, it may have 2 wires on it ..then on the rt side the drain pump must be removed...look and you will find a locking tap on the collar, depress it and rotate the pump counter clockwise 1/4 turn it then comes off..you wont be able to get the rear tab with out removing the pump, twist the thermistor out of its location, then push up from the bottom .if you can get some kevlar gloves do so..very sharp i repeat very sharp only other thing is to unplug the motor... this aint easy if left mounted in the cabinet...if you take it out its much easier and safer....

Thanks a lot. I'll give this a try tomorrow. The whole sump and motor assembly costs $180 from a local supplier. I'm hoping, from this parts page http://tinyurl.com/57eewm to find some smaller part that I can replace to eliminate the loud noise when it's running. What do you think are my chances of eliminating the noise by replacing something less than the whole assembly?

I'm quite sure you're going to find that the problem is a bad front motor bearing.  The seal goes bad but no so bad as to make a noticable leak which then keeps the front bearing damp and causes it to start making noise.

You could replace just the main wash motor itself for around $100-$125, it comes preassembled with new seals and impeller, just one bolt and twist to remove from pump housing.

Thanks a lot for the help. Your description was right on target. I replaced the motor and it's back together now. You're right about taking it out of the cabinet. Maybe next time f I tried real hard I could get the motor out from the front and bottom after having done this once, but I could never have done it the first time without taking the dishwasher out of the cabinet.
